So recently I was lucky enough to be able to take part in something pretty special – the lookfantastic christmas campaign.
The 60 second advert fits alongside lookfantastic’s christmas #beautyinwonderland campaign and christmas advent calendar – all Alice In Wonderland themed of course! The advert features the famous Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Scene from the film starring a whole host of beauty influencers including Camilla Thurlow & Chloe Lewis.
So how did I get the part? There was a long and arduous casting process… just kidding. With a last minute dropout I was asked to step in (I’m not sure what the PR team thought I would be able to fill the Mad Hatter’s boots? I mean i’m totally not mad – he say’s rocking back and forth). Bing Bang Bosh. I was the Mad Hatter!
Once I arrived at the set (which was 10 minutes from my house #winning) I was greeted by a huge winter wonderland set, with snow, christmas treats and Alice In Wonderland themed decorations.
Hair and make-up was my first port of call (which was a first for me, and I must say thanks for the MAC hair and make-up team who actually made me look half decent).
Following hair and make-up I was whisked away into wardrobe where I was given my costume – and what a costume! The hat was amazing…
HAT – STYLIST’S OWN
BLAZER – TED BAKER
SHIRT – RIVER ISLAND
SCARF – STYLIST’S OWN
TROUSERS – RIVER ISLAND
SHOES – ASOS
Throughout the close ups, me walking down a platform and interacting at the table – the whole day was amazing, and probably the best thing I’ve ever done (although I do look mental).
I must say meeting everyone was also amazing, I don’t usually do much beauty blogging (occasionally here and there) but the whole experience has definitely made me want to get into it more (so wait and see on that one!) You can see the full cast list (with links to their social media) here.
